I was so excited to get a carrier for my son! I had never used a carrier with a newborn before. Well, I tried, but I couldn’t get past the yards and yards of stretchy fabric. It all seemed so intimidating to me. Enter the Baby K’tan carrier… no yards and yards of fabric! All of the work is basically done for you. As they say on their website, “A wrap without all the wrapping”. Genius!
So what is a Baby K’tan carrier?
The Baby K’tan Baby Carrier is an innovative soft cotton baby carrier that is an ideal blend of a sling, wrap and carrier, providing the positions and benefits of all three
The Baby K’tan does come with an instructional booklet to show you various carries which is nice, and something that I definitely used in the beginning. Their website also has a section to show you how to wear their carrier. It’s really easy. You slip the carrier over your head, slip your arms in, spread the fabric, insert baby, arrange the fabric and done! No fussing with a cranky baby and 16 yards of stretchy fabric!
As you can see my son loves the carrier! This pic is from when he was a little while back when he was smaller.
This is a pic of us using the carrier
As you can see the fabric is evenly distributed in the Baby K’tan and I am able to do things free handed unlike slings where I feel I have to keep a hand on the baby at all times. I have yet to attempt to nurse in the carrier, but practice makes perfect I suppose!
If you are looking for a carrier to snuggle your newborn in nice and close, this is a great one to invest in, at a reasonable price starting at $49.95! The carrier is great for both mom and dad, and comes in 5 regular colors, 2 organic colors and their Breeze carrier which is 50% mesh, 50% cotton, comes in 2 colors as well.
You can purchase the Baby K’tan carrier on their website and various retailers carry them as well. The fine folks at Baby K’tan have kindly opened up a giveaway right here! That’s right, you can choose any of their carriers! The one we are modeling above is an organic carrier.
